URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/bruce
Category: Actors/Actresses
Opened: January 30th, 2006
About: I love Bruce Campbell.  I think he is absolutely brilliant.  Whether it is the Evil Dead Series, Brisco County Jr, or even bit parts in movies like Sky High I find him a joy to watch. Plus, he's genuinely a nice guy.  I met him for a book signing when his first book came out.

Name: Complexity

Category: Actors
Opened: July 3rd, 2006
About: He plays a perfect husband on television, I wanted him to win Alicia Silverstone's heart on Miss Match and have you seen how cute he is? It helps that he's also a pretty good actor.  Ah, but I envy Jennifer Love Hewitt.  Going to work can't be that much of a chore. 

Name: Enigmatic
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/garbo
Category: Actors/Actresses
Opened: May 26th, 2005
About: There was something about Garbo that made her irresistible to watch.  She was one of the greats, along with Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly, and Kate Hepburn. She was a real starlets.  Maybe it would be different now with how intrusive the media is, but I don't think so.

Name: Like No Other
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/hayworth
Category: Actors/Actresses
Opened: March 30th, 2006
About: When I first saw Gilda, I was completely taken with Rita Hayworth.  How on earth could she make the removal of a glove the most sensual thing on the screen?  You couldn't take your eyes off of her when she was on the screen.  Another one of the great starlets.

Name: With Absolute Grace
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/grace
Category: Actors
Opened: August 25th, 2002
About: Grace Kelly is probably one of my favorite actresses of all time.  She had a beauty and a grace that was unmatched during her time on the screen.  In fact I think she is one of the most beautiful women I have veer seen.  This was also my very first fanlisting.

About: For the Birds is one of Pixar's best short films.  The music is great and the story wonderful. It won an Oscar after all.  It's highly memorable and I absolutely love the very end bit, especially the squeaks. Reminds me of a chew toy.

Name: Just The Assistant
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/beaker
Category: Characters
Opened: June 30th, 2006
About: Beaker was always one of my favorite Muppets.  Maybe it is the hair, or the nose or his little 'meeps'.  He may be Just the Assistant, but I loved him and still do.  I know that I am not the only one.

URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/synchronicity

FILM - 11

Name: The Place of Lost
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/blairthumb
Category: Film
Opened: May 30th, 2005
About: 'Oh spit man.  Oh spit.' I find the Thumb Movies hilarious.  I watched Thumb Wars when I was working in the store and then the Blair Thumb and Thumbtanic.  Wonderful parodies and highly quotable.  The Blair Thumb is my favorite.  'I'm so glad it's not me.'  

Name: Le Pacte
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/loup
Category: Film
Opened: September 26th, 2006
About: Brotherhood of the Wolf is a great film and not just because you see Mark Dacascos in a loin cloth, though it helps.  It is a wonderful blend of action, horror, romance, drama and more all fit within a lovely historical piece.  Love the cinematography.  

Name: Honest Courtesan
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/dangerous
Category: Film
Opened: February 11th, 2006
About: Dangerous Beauty is one of my favorite films.  It is about Courtesans, Veronica Franco the poetess to be specific, and I love every minute of it including her speech in front of the court.  I could watch it again and again and never get bored.   

Name: Who Am I?
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/darkcity
Category: Film
Opened: April 23rd, 2006
About: Another great film by the talented Mr. Alex Proyas, Dark City is a lovely little sci-fi thriller. It is in my top 50 films of all time and it is a beautifully dark film to watch.  You should watch it.

Name: Go Paint My House
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/eden
Category: Film
Opened: June 4th, 2005
About: Some people may think it is a horrible film.  I happen to enjoy it.  It makes me laugh and a little S&M every now and again is just plain fun.  Especially when love is involved.  Rosie O'Donnell is a hoot in this.

Name: Escape With Me
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/horseman
Category: Film
Opened: June 4th, 2005
About: Le Hussard sur le toi or Horseman on the roof was a film that I saw when I did my exchange program in High School.  I loved the film.  Juliette Binoche has always been a favorite of fine and then there was Olivier.  A wonderful tale of love.

Name: The Enemy Below
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/jaws
Category: Film
Opened: December 18th, 2005
About: Jaws is a great film.  And a scary enough film that the images are with you when you go to the ocean, even if in jest.  Though I had a slightly scarier image in mind when I lived on the Shore. *shiver*

Name: Love Lessons
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/kamasutra
Category: Film
Opened: February 16th, 2006
About: One of my favorite movies of all time, Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love is a beautifully tragic romance, but I adore the journey.  Mira Nair has such a talent for making things so exquisite. Naveeen Andres fans...he's in it.

Name: Play The Part
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/stagebeauty
Category: Film
Opened: June 5th, 2005
About: There are not a lot of people who got to see Stage Beauty.  I am a sucker for anything that involves Shakespeare, is a period piece drama and apparently involves Builly Crudup in drag. *smile*  Its a nice story of finding out who you really are.

Name: Atten'shun
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/tanky
Category: Film
Opened: August 18th, 2007
About: Not only is this movie highly quotable, but it has Naomi Watts as well.  Love, love this film.  How can you not?  But I love the comic as well.  But that listing is already taken, so the film will have to do.

Name: Heroes Come In All Sizes
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/willow
Category: Film
Opened: January 21st, 2007
About: Willow is a wonderful little fantasy tale.  It has humor, adventure, romance and lot of magic.  If you haven't seen the film, shame on you.  You should go to your video store immediately.
